Hurd shingle, Kinowelt USA pick up script

'Hero' ends up at Valhalla

Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Prods., in conjunction with Kinowelt USA, has paid low against mid-six figures for scribe James Cummings’ script “Working Class Hero.”

Valhalla has a multiyear, first-look deal with Kinowelt.

“Working” centers on a smart-mouthed Boston cop who likes to fly solo and play by his own rules. Teamed with a competitive female rookie, he takes on a complex murder investigation. .

“This captivating story has a fresh sense of humor and irresistible characters,” said Kinowelt USA co-chair Chris Sievernich, who shares the title with Rainer Kolmel. “It really transcends the genre.”

Cummings wrote and co-starred in the 1999 Seattle Intl. Film Festival award-winning film “Southie,” which also starred Rose McGowan, Amanda Peet and Donnie Wahlberg. He also appeared in several indie pics, including “Ed’s Next Move” and “Swoon.”

Hurd was a producer on such event films as “Armageddon,” “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” “Aliens” and “Dante’s Peak.”

Founded in 1984 by brothers Michael and Rainer Kolmel, Kinowelt is the largest film distributor in Germany with offices in Los Angeles.

Sievernich recently exec produced USA Films’ “Nurse Betty,” which stars Renee Zellweger, Chris Rock and Morgan Freeman, and was directed by Neil La Bute; “Where the Money Is,” starring Paul Newman and Linda Fiorentino; and the Columbia Pictures’ release “The Wedding Planner,” starring Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey.
